Programs don't run.... Mandrake 9.1

Has anyone seen this?

I click on TuxRacer, and some other arcade games that came with the app, and they just sit down in the tray loading, but never actually appear....

The funny thing is, they worked before. I can't think of anything I did that would have changed their behavior.... any ideas?

Check your graphic card driver. have you changed the configuration recently?
Also open a terminal and run one of the programs you have problems with using their name. An error message should be shown, if there's any.
